The end of Super Bowl XLIX between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will forever be one of the most thrilling endings to a Super Bowl in NFL history.
In the final moments of the game, with the score 28-24 to New England, the Seahawks threatened to score as they drove the ball to the Patriots' one-yard line.
With 26 seconds remaining in the game, many thought Seattle would hand the ball off to Marshawn Lynch, one of the best running backs in the NFL at the time, to score and win the game.
Instead, the Seahawks decided to pass the ball, which was then intercepted by Patriots' Malcolm Butler in the endzone, effectively ending the game.
Ever since this moment, many have scrutinized the call made by Seattle, as they believe they had the game in their hands if they just handed the ball off to Lynch.
The now Oakland Raiders running back was asked about the play by UNINTERRUPTED’s Matt Barnes, to which he said he was surprised that Wilson didn't call an audible at the line.
He said, via For The Win: “What certain individuals were thinking at the time is just not the situation that we needed to be in. Like should I change it? With Russell should I change the situation or can I get it handled?
“I’m looking at it like, I’ve seen Russell do some that hasn’t been done before. At the end of the day, I’m not too concerned about if some can get done, because if it’s anybody that can make some magic happen, it’s this Because I’ve seen him do it on my occasions before.
"The honest to God truth is, sometimes I think, ‘do you think you should have audibled?’

“At the end of the day, I’m not mad at him or who called the But I’m going to tell you like this, when that play was called, and I saw the expression on the other 10 guys’ faces in there … when they heard the call … they looked right at me.
"And I’m looking like *claps* break. What y’all want me to do?”
At the end of the day, if you have arguably the best running back in the game at the time on your in that situation at the end of the Super Bowl, you probably should have used him.News Now - Sport News
